Quilt of Valor
This top was pieced by Bonnie in Ohio, then sent to me for quilting. It's 65 x 84. It is a Quilt of Valor and will be presented to someone in the miltary.
I used a red/white/blue variegated thread that shows off the great patriotic fabrics:
love the eagle on this one
I quilted stars in the center of the "circles"
There are hooks and line dancing in the 4-patches,
and in the smaller cream squares where the circles come together
The larger border has a meander as nothing else would show
the narrow border has diagonal lines
I like where the corner pieces come together with the narrow border
The backing is a tone on tone cream
